Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) Needs Assessment

Using this component of the latest LRTP, Charting Progress to 2040, see how the region’s current and future transportation system interacts with current and projected land use and the environment, and evaluate how it serves low-income and minority populations.  

Performance Dashboard: Transportation in the Boston Region

Use this interactive data visualization dashboard to explore data on crashes, bridge and pavement condition, traffic congestion, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and demographics, and learn more about how the MPO monitors and measures system performance.  

2015 Express-Highway and Arterial Roadway Performance Dashboards

The Express-Highway Performance Dashboard and Arterial Performance Dashboard graphically display peak-period congestion for expressways and arterials in the Boston Region MPO area, in 2015. The performance measures in the dashboards represent three factors related to congestion: duration, intensity, and travel time reliability. Each dashboard consists of regional overview maps, route-specific data, and downloadable accessible tables. The data used in both dashboards were collected in 2015 by INRIX and processed by CTPS staff.
